Once you file an income tax return, the IT Department processes your return and sends an Intimation comparing the figures as reported in the ITR and as computed by the IT Department.
There are 2 possibilities in the Intimation :
- Computation of Income & Tax as reported in ITR match with figures computed by the IT department.
- There is a mismatch in the figures reported in ITR and figures computed by the IT department.
In case there is some clerical/arithmetical error in Intimation issued and the assessee does not agree to it, then assessee can opt for Reprocessing of the ITR form on Income Tax e-filing portal.
